Did you know..
★ About 91% of all plastic waste has never been recycled?
★ Almost half of all litter in the U.S. is food packaging
As a few of you may know, sustainability is important us at Open Farm. Five years ago, we were the first pet food company to create a nationwide pet food packaging recycling program. And since then, we’ve constantly brainstormed and thought – what’s next? What else can we do to reduce our environmental footprint?
“Sustainability is at the core of everything we do at Open Farm as we continue our commitment to raise the bar when it comes to feeding our pets and caring for our planet,” said Isaac Langleben, Co-Founder and CEO of Open Farm. “Joining Loop is an important next step in reducing our environmental impact and is the perfect way to offer consumers a waste free option.”
As of June 30, 2020, we’re proud to announce that Open Farm has officially partnered with Loop, the circular shopping platform developed by international recycling leader TerraCycle®, as the first ever pet food participant. So in simple terms – we’re the first pet food to introduce reusable recycling.
With this new partnership, we will introduce consumers to reusable, refillable packaging as part of our ongoing effort to positively impact the environment and reduce the use of single use packaging and disposable waste. Beginning immediately, consumers located in select markets can purchase Open Farm Chicken & Lamb Freeze-Dried Raw Dog Food in reusable containers that are collected, cleaned, refilled and reused.
We wouldn’t have been able to launch this initiative without the support of our Open Farm pets. Please share your excitement with us on Instagram @openfarmpet!
